There is a lot of excitement about the new Nintendo console and naturally many questions. Can you use your Wii accessories on the Wii U? This is one of the most commonly asked questions. Find a complete and detailed answer below.
The news is good. You will be able to use all of your Wii accessories on the Wii U. The new system is fully backwards compatible with its predecessor. In fact, Nintendo will most likely keep on producing and selling both.
You will be able to use the standard Wii Remote Plus controller with the Wii U. You can expect to be able to use not only one, but two of these controllers with the new system. Still, this has not yet been officially confirmed. In general, you will enjoy any game fully as the controller senses your movement in all three dimensions. You can readily use the Hunchuk together with the Remote Plus for an even more dynamic gaming experience and more precise control over your character.
The Classic Controller Pro also works with the new console. You will enjoy traditional gaming fully thanks to the specific design and the big buttons of the controller. At the same time, you will be able to experience all the action in HD. This combination between old and new is truly amazing. You should certainly try it especially if you have been passionate about gaming for a long time now.
You can use the Balance Board and Wheel accessories with Wii U as well. The first one will certainly give you more exciting game playing experience plus a nice workout. You can use the Wheel for great existing and new driving games such as DiRT. Just remember to keep up with the latest titles being released so that you can make the most out of the new console and the accessories that you have already got.
You can readily use all Wii accessories on the Wii U. The next logical question to ask is whether you will be able to include new ones that will come with the latest console in your game play when using the original system. At present, no announcements have been made about new and different accessories coming with the latest console. What we know for now is that Nintendo will continue with the production of both systems.
This comes to suggest there will be no new accessories at least with the introduction of the Wii U to the market. Since there is a new controller, however, such devices may appear perhaps in the more distant future.
